But I also doubt the NCHC, WCHA, et al are going to do anything major until they know for sure what the heck is going to happen with Arizona State.

    That being said, in the Mankato thread that was linked, it mentioned that BG wanted out too. If the WCHA were to lose both Mankato and Bowling Green, I'd like to see us get Western Michigan and Miami, but with Western doing good this year, I doubt they'd want to leave the conference even if the fee was waived.
    Yes, Mankato wants to join the NCHC and the former WCHA members support it. However, Andy Murray and Rico Blasi would not approve another MN team unless an "eastern" team (BG) could also be admitted. So, if Mankato and BG were to join the NCHC. Why would WMU or Miami want to replace them in the WCHA?

    With the demise of the CCHA, travel costs for both increased but trading Denver, CC, and NoDak for Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Huntsville would probably be a non-starter. Many years the new WCHA gets only one team in the NCAA although this year it likely will be 2......possibly even 3 if the league championship has an upset winner. The NCHC gets 3-5 teams in and a 4th place finish usually is good enough to get in.

    Agreed. I decided to pay for the TV package and while a bit pricey, I dont regret it one bit. Its been fun watching them.

    Why? Because Miami has been in the NCHC's basement for most of it's existence, and Western is only starting to climb in the standings.

    So can we start the rumor that GLIAC and MAC schools are forming the GLIMAC hockey conference?

    With a sweep over Bemidji, the Lakers could climb to 14 or 15 in the PWR with some help.

    Lakers have yet to win a Saturday game at home, so if they win you would have to show up to all remaining Saturday home games.

    I'll actually be at the next two in a row, so we'll test that theory.

    Bemidji has always been a tough game for the Lakers dating way back to the 60s .

    And the Beavers have had issues with Saturdays, only netting two sweeps on the year, at Anchorage and then last week at home against Tech.......

    The irony here is that when the NCHC was forming Miami tried to block Western from getting in....not "elite" enough. Western hockey fans really love it when they beat Miami. Western is hanging on the edge (#13 Pairwise) They have been swept at Denver and St. Cloud. However, they host Denver this weekend and St. Cloud later in the season. Probably need at least a split in both to have a shot at NCAAs.

    Lakers have a respectable 3-1-1 record at home on Friday but a horrid 0-4-1 at home at Saturday. Why can't we win at home on Saturdays?

    I think he's a walk on. Played junior hockey out east although he's from western Canada. He's played a bit for the Lakers in some exhibition games.

    Correct, Vida's from Alberta, Canada and played in the AJHL before coming to the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) for the remainder of his junior hockey career.

    https://www.easternhockeyleague.org/...le/show/832792

    So while he played in the AJ which has a decent track record of D1 recruits, the EHL is not known for producing same. I would expect he'll get little to no ice at LSSU given the program's upward trajectory, but that's just me.

    Lakers need a sweep this weekend to keep home ice position. Michigan Tech is pretty much guaranteed to sweep UAA easily.

    I guess you never know. BSU dropped a game to UAA.
